A Declaration

I hereby declare the Boldman Family's INDEPENDENCE!

We found a cute little house near where we are currently living, and have decided to put down a deposit and application to rent it.

We are so super excited, and I can't wait to show you pictures! I can't wait to make it "my own."

Will you follow me on the journey? I'd love to keep you updated!

In the meantime, if you have any burning questions you'd like to ask me, you can catch up with me on Formspring! My user name is NotJustA. Feel free to post a question to me and sign up to be notified by email when I answer!

Someone I know

I just want to draw attention to someone I am proud to say I know, and whom I am glad to call a friend.

She is working on her "40 x 40" list. 40 things she wants to do before the big four-oh.

Claire is absolutely amazing, and I hope to come out on the other side of adversity HALF as well as she has.

Join Claire on her journey here. You should also check out this amazing organization, where she is the executive director. Oh, and check out this post...cause there's a picture of me and my husband! Holla!!!

What's going on?

Hi everyone...

Just checking in to see who's still with me.

I've been absent and I hate it. I really enjoy writing and connecting and I just haven't been able to do that lately.

The bottom line is, hubby and I are working EXTREMELY hard to get out on our own. The only problem is, I only get paid in class credit (who knew that they don't take that as currency at Chick Fil A?) and the occasional piece of cake for a co-worker's baby shower.

We're working our butts off, and it seems like we're not getting anywhere. At least, it seems that way to me. I think my husband has a better "big picture" view than me right now, which is ironic because this time last year I was the one making long-range plans. Now I've got a thousand-yard-stare and can't make a solid decision to save my life.

Ever been there?
